Fishing in FloridaPosted on March 31st, 2009
Barbara & I came back just before the Toronto Sportsman Show from a trip to south-east Florida. The weather was great and you might wonder what we do when we are on holidays. We golfed and fished. We had a chance to fish in the north Fort Lauderdale area both from a party boat (trolling for tuna, dolphin fish and king mackerel), and also fishing the piers for a variety of pretty bottom fish.
Even though we had windy weather and a Florida “cold-front” (temperatures dipped to 40F), we still made the most of it and golfed or fished almost every day.
Medium-action spinning or baitcasting outfits is all you need if you are planning to travel to Florida and you are thinking of doing some shore, pier, or bridge fishing.
If you go out on a charter or party boat, they have all the proper gear so you don’t need to take any of the heavy saltwater rods & reels.
